Hungry for Light: The Journal of Ethel Schwabacher (Everywoman)

Hungry for Light: The Journal of Ethel Schwabacher (Everywoman) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Schwabacher is a lyrical and literate writer... Hungry for Light is much more than an outsider's challenge to canonical thinking about twentieth-century painters. It provides a fascinating look at how a woman of intelligence, sensitivity and talent who was all but ignored managed to create meaning in her life despite its pains and contradictions." --Women's Review of Books

"The journal is a poignant, lyrical, and meditative record of the feelings and experiences of a woman artist."
